The annual exhibition at the City Hall organized by the Hong Kong Publishing Federation could be regarded as the predecessor of the Hong Kong Book Fair. The first Hong Kong Book Fair was held in 1990 and this year it is its 29th year. The Fair has become an annual major event in Hong Kong with the number of visitors reaching new high every year. The organiser, the HKTDC, has always been striving to promote a local reading culture. Apart from extensively inviting the public to the Fair to visit and buy books, it also spares no effort in organising diversified cultural activities during the Book Fair period with a view to enhancing the contents and quality of the Fair.
